Follow the Crescendo! Finally, the CRESCENDO is rising. CRESCENDO (AKA: Carlton V. Carpenter II) was born and raised in Washington, DC, and studied music for 19 years and producing since 1997. He began his music education in 1989 at the DC Youth Orchestra, studying the clarinet. In 1992, wanting to further his musical background he decided to audition for Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC. There he continued to study the clarinet and later the saxophone and piano. After graduating from Duke Ellington School of the Arts in 1996, he enrolled at Clark Atlanta University, studying music education.
In 1999 he, along with two business partners, established Nuthouse Music Group, LLC, not simply creating music for hip-hop and R&B acts, but, recognizing the all-encompassing nature of the genre in people’s lives, creating a division of Nuthouse Music Group, LLC, directed towards producing background music for commercial answering services.
Towards the end of 2005, CRESCENDO realized that there wasn't any other career path that he would grow to love and take as his own, outside of music composition. He began to rebuild his music catalog on his own, and is presently shopping his projects to local and national organizations. His catalog not only appeals to the Hip-Hop, R&B, & Pop genres, but is starting to strike a chord within the tv/film industry. His goals include producing for up and coming artists as well as establishing his music in films. CRESCENDO's goal is to take aggressive steps in establishing himself as a profound source towards a new sound and direction in the music industry.
